How to Soundproof a Ceiling

Filed under: Soundproofing — Deborah Dera @ 12:01 pm

tmsound ceilingReducing noise in your home through soundproofing may sound difficult, but don’t be fooled — it’s actually easy enough to do. Some folks may be hesitant to do their own soundproofing job in their home, especially the ceiling, but with the proper know-how it’s not that hard.

If you include soundproofing as a room is being constructed, it is a very easy task. Here’s a few pointers and steps for getting that ceiling soundproofed:

You will need to start out by cutting your drywall. You will need strips of drywall that can fit in between the joists in the ceiling. Apply some damping compound such as Green Glue to the drywall strips before attaching them to the subfloor. You may want to install a second layer of Green Glue and drywall to make the soundproofing even better. (more…)

Are White Noise Machines Safe for Babies?

Filed under: Soundproofing — Deborah Dera @ 12:05 pm

sleeping babyMany modern parents have discovered that white noise machines are a great tool to help a restless baby get to sleep. Such machines offer the soothing sound of rushing waters or other noise to help lull a little one into calm and peaceful slumber. Recent studies, though, have offered a warning to parents about the use of such white noise machines. Why? The studies concluded that the machines could actually cause hearing loss.

The studies measured the typical distances between such machines and a sleeping child and measured the decibel volumes at the given distances. The audio levels were measured with the white noise devices placed in cribs, placed near the cribs, and across the room. The distances were approximately one foot, a little over three feet, and a little over six feet. (more…)

Todays Google Doodle

Filed under: Soundproofing — admin @ 5:42 pm

Today’s Google Doodle shows how powerful and intent the liberal agenda is. They have spent billions pushing the joke called evolution agenda and this doodle of  “41st anniversary of the discovery of Lucy” culminates this great effort. People have become so accustomed to it that it is taken for granted and if you don’t drum along to their beat you are looked upon as a fool. Well there is no greater fools than the people who buy into this silliness. Let’s take Lucy as an example. Lucy is 3.2 million years old, remarkable. Not 2.95 million or 3.62 million but 3.2 million to be exact. Why not? when your throwing that many years around just choose 3.2 who will come refute you anyways. And what did they discover a few fragments of bone that they build artists rendering around based on ten could have beens and presto this is your ancestor. So in 3.2 million years until now they could not find constant lineage to trace Good ol’ Lucy to humans.

The Bible has an exact lineage that many Jewish people today can trace themselves back father to son all the way to Adam. Can Scientists have someone trace themselves back from today to someone past Adam with  the persons name how long and where they lived? And this does not need to be more than 6,000 years old. Every day they change their mind on the things under their nose. Red meat is bad for you, red meat is good for you. Today coffee is good for you yesterday it was bad. First the world was around forever and then when they could not continue with that folly the Big Bang followed. Yet when a few scientists piece together a few fragments of bone found scattered all over and date it to precisely 3.2 million years and claim to have found the missing link, everyone applauds them rewards them and blindly believes them.

Bottom line. Everything is debatable including the whole testing of the age of fossils, search around and you will see there are two sides to everything. One thing is for sure if you believe an eye or an ear evolved from a single cell (mathematical probability of close to zero) and put it together with the whole body and the whole balance of the world and the universe, then you are a bigger believer than people that believe in the Bible.

Protecting Yourself from Airplane Noise

Filed under: Soundproofing — Deborah Dera @ 7:20 am

jet planeResidents who live near large airports are usually able to receive materials to soundproof their homes against the noise of the airport. What most people don’t realize, though, is that residents who receive this kind of assistance didn’t automatically get it just because they live close to an airport. To get the help they needed, they had to work for it. That work usually entailed making several complaints to municipalities, to the airport, and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Residents joined together with neighbors to fight for their right to quiet until they were able to force the airport to fix the issues caused by their air traffic. (more…)
